USGS Tucson library dedicated to Karen Bolm

The library of the USGS Tucson regional branch office was dedicated tonight in memory of Karen Bolm, long-time geologist who was widely considered the 'face of the USGS' in southern Arizonan because of her commitment to public engagement and outreach. Karen died in 2009 shortly after being diagnosed with liver cancer.

A few dozen friends and colleagues gathered after work to share remembrances and tour the newly organized library with a brass plaque denoting the dedication.
